Revolutionaries believed that by terrorizing British officials, they would be able to demoralize the entire machinery of the government and bring about freedom. After the government suppressed almost all open political agitations, the activities of the revolutionary groups were intensified. The revolutionary groups organized assassination of unpopular police officials, magistrates and approvers, committed dacoities to collect money for their activities and looted arms. Attempts were made on the lives of two viceroys, Minto and Hardinge. Such groups were also active outside India, in Europe and America. The most prominent was the. Ghadar Party. These groups tried to smuggle arms into India fomented mutinies of Indian soldiers in India as well as those stationed in Burma and Singapore. The heroism and self-sacrifice of these revolutionaries were a source of inspiration to the people of India.
